Programme Together against Human Trafficking

Programme Together against Human Trafficking

The Netherlands is bolstering its approach to human trafficking. Since human trafficking occurs in a variety of forms and in a variety of sectors, a wide array of parties need to be involved for an effective approach. So the government is joining forces with a large number of different partners who are directly involved in dealing with human trafficking on our streets and in our neighbourhoods and cities, such as local authorities, the police, the public prosecution service, the healthcare and education sectors, and national and international NGOs and organisations.

Integrated programme approach

The ‘Together Against Human Trafficking’ programme encompasses a wide range of procedures, projects and initiatives that complement and reinforce one another along five lines of action. In this regard, the existing approach to human trafficking is being further developed and expanded with concrete new initiatives. The programme will bolster existing efforts to fight human trafficking in the Netherlands as well as on a European and International level. It will serve as an umbrella programme with which new initiatives can successively be associated, depending on developments in the field and the requirements of those parties involved in the approach.
